Re: new to SA and new to airboats with a couple questions...

Got to remember this is a long ways from Florida. I get stuck and it's a 10mile walk out and the only other airboat was on it's way back home 200 miles away.

I'll have the other rig down next weekend and I'll try some semi dry ground :)

Re: powershift prop pitch

Called water walker today and they answered my question. If you hold the shank in your hand with the sn# stamp facing you, follow the trailing edge to where it meets the shank, the index mark is about 5/8" to the right. Problem solved! Got to say a big thanks to Water Walker. Considering that I...

It's mfg date is 81 not a Vietnam era boat so I'm wondering if any of you have run one. The person I'm buying it from has the exact same hull with a 383 stroaker and it...

Re: new to SA and new to airboats with a couple questions...

The hull is a early 80s era hurricane. In good shape the stringers seem sound. The motor is recently rebuilt but even if it's not it's just a BBC. With what I'm going to pay I could rebuild it with out much pain. The cage is a bit rough but it's a hunting boat.

Anyone know anything about this hull?
